The Illusionist  Amber Wickard  10­01­2015  Extra Credit  WGS          The Illusionist ​was an interesting film. I had never really thought about the way other  cultures might perceive beauty­ for men and women. It surprised me that the east preferred  whiter skin tones and that the west preferred darker tones. But it made a lot of sense, as to the  way people of different cultures portray themselves to the world. I liked how you can really get a  sense of how much the world has changed since the 1960’s. Considering that in those days, little  girls played with legos and male dolls were just male dolls. But now, it seems that little girls can  only play with toys that look feminine and boys can only play with toys that resemble  masculinity. Which I think it’s ridiculous to make young girls think that love ability depends on  sex appeal. And I’m sure I’m not the only one. Ultimately, children should be able to be  children. To have fun, get dirty and that’s it. To make them view the world in the same way that  adults see it, seems just stupid. Mostly because, how can you expect young kids to understand  how society and sex appeal works? In magazines, they wear what the stylists tell them to put on.  Who’s to say they even like looking the way the editors and producers want them to look?  Another thing that made me kind of mad was the face that people photoshop women and models  in magazines. I would personally take an offense to that. I love myself­my body, who I am and  want to be. Everyone should feel that way about themselves, I think. And it should not be anyone  else’s business to determine the way a person looks. Not only is that just inhuman to transform  another person, but to do so for an industry. The business world and selling of products does  things like this more than people probably realize. And only to sell a product and make more  money. I don’t think a man or woman should ever feel undesirable because of the advertising  industry. Every single body is beautiful the way it is and no one should ever try to follow the  imaginary guidelines that society throws in our faces. Just choose to be you.
